Although I enjoy the occasional scruff, it's nice to kiss the cheek of a guy with a clean-shaven face, and the smoother the better. This all-encompassing kit from The Art of Shaving helps prevent what men fear most when grooming: Ingrown hairs, razor burn, tough beard and irritable skin. The four-piece set includes pre-shave oil, shaving cream, a brush, and after-shave balm. An added bonus is that these products are unscented and hypoallergenic, to ensure precise, manly results.

4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Kit, $100.00 at The Art of Shaving, 1528 Walnut Street, Phila., PA.
